Welcome to Belmont Synagogue!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Council of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
Updated arrangements for services
The Shul Council and Executive are delighted to tell you about the changes you will see in Shul which started from Shabbat Bereishit (2 October).
Firstly, we have put the Shul back to how it was before the pandemic.
Mask wearing is optional. We have areas in Shul for members who prefer to sit near others wearing a mask. For men this will be as you enter Shul to your right and for women in the upstairs gallery to the left of the Ark. Elsewhere in Shul you may choose whether or not to wear a mask.
Chairs will continue to be one metre apart and we would ask you to leave them like that. The Shul will continue to be well ventilated.
Kiddush will now follow the Shabbat service every week. All food is individually wrapped and there is plenty of whisky! It is a wonderful opportunity to have a "catch up" with friends before going home for lunch. We would love you to sponsor a Kiddush to celebrate a happy occasion or to remember a loved one. For further details please contact the Shul office.
As you can see on this page, some social and educational events will be held in Shul the month.
As Bereishit marked a new beginning in the Torah, let us also mark a new beginning at Belmont, as Shul life slowly and always cautiously returns to 'normal'.
If you have not been to Shul for a while, come and see how you feel, listen to our beautiful davening and layning, and enjoy the very special ruach that is Belmont.
